Friday, September 3rd Family Update

Happy Friday O’Dea Core Knowledge Elementary families!   It has been a busy lovely week here at school with our students getting their groove on and our teachers are clicking along building classroom communities and digging deep into their instruction. 

I want to thank everyone for their patience and support as we navigated our PSD safety threat today as well.  Please know that if there is a situation at our site that I will communicate with families via a school dialer (phone call) and/or an email as quickly as I can to bring you up to speed.  Our school day went off without a hitch and our students were safe…with their teachers and friends...and learning.

Please make sure that you check in ParentVue to make sure that all your contact information is correct, especially phone numbers and emails.  If there is a district level emergency, the district will call and email you, as many of you found out today.  Please note that phone calls may come from (970) 490-3050, so be sure to add this number to your contacts as Poudre School District.  If you need help accessing ParentVue to update contact information, please connect with Rene Noland in the front office at 488-4450.

Our teachers are going to be reaching out this month and into October to start connecting with families for parent teacher conferences.  We do plan on meeting with 100 percent of our parents as our collaboration and teamwork with families is a priority. 

I hope you have a lovely long Labor Day Weekend.  I am off to Eugene, OR to move my son back to school for the year.  It will be a great weekend of unpacking…climbing…and movies…a good balance of busy time and rest time and I wish the same for all of you as well.

Happy to have week three in the books…so far…so amazing.

Much love and support,
